CES 2012: Verizon intros BlackBerry Curve 9370

curve

While it may not be the most exciting announcement of CES 2012 or even the most exciting announcement from Verizon Wireless, Big Red said it would be carrying the BlackBerry Curve 9370.

The handset is Verizon’s version of the 9360 and we liked it for what it is: an entry-level BlackBerry for those who love a physical QWERTY keyboard. We’re still not in love with BlackBerry 7 – especially compared to iOS, Android and Windows Phone – but it’s still a great communication device.
